lavender sugar...

Happy Sunday!  

For someone that isn't a huge purple fan, I'm back with a card with purple...or lavender.  I'm determined to use the set of Prima blooms that I bought:)


The damask paper is flocked...gorgeous stuff by Little Yellow Bicycle, I used black seam binding ribbon and topped off the card with PTI buttons and Kaisercraft pearls.

Do you see the Maya Road Trinket pin?

I was inspired by PDCC66:


My card design was inspired by the Get Sketchy Scrappy Saturday Challenge:
